'Leaving never, ever crossed my mind'

Given his rapid rise to the top, it is only natural that other clubs would cast covetous glances in his direction - but Hector Bellerin insists it has never crossed his mind to leave.

The Spain international signed a new contract with us on Monday and is determined to continue his development here after joining in 2011.

“I’m really, really happy and this club is my home right now,” Bellerin told Arsenal Player. “I’ve been here for more than five years now so I was really, really excited when the club told me that they wanted to extend my contract.

“I wasn’t thinking about anything else other than staying here and continuing my development here. This is where I’m happy. I’m just very grateful and pleased to have signed.

“Arsenal is not only about being a footballer, you have to be a good person to play here. That’s what everyone transmits inside the club. You represent more than just a football club.

"I’m a player who tries to be an example for everyone, not just on the pitch but off it as well.

“Now I’ve just got to keep on progressing, keep working hard to be the best player I can be, and hopefully help the team to be where its got to be, to win some silverware. That’s what everyone wants and that’s what I’m working towards.”
